For many thousands of years, the Aboriginal people of the Dharawal nation have lived in the area which now includes Royal National Park.
The park protects their rich and ongoing cultural heritage - including many Aboriginal sites and artefacts.
You can learn more about Dharawal culture by joining a Discovery tour in the park. An Aboriginal Discovery Ranger will show you how people used to live with this ancient land, getting food, medicine and other necessities from their local environment. You can also arrange a guided tour of the rock engravings at Jibbon Point, near Bundeena.
For bookings and more information, check the park's guided tours page, or phone the Discovery Coordinator on 02 9542 0649.
